COUNTRY ID = Unique ID of the country in HEX format. We can find them by going to the editor and then
selecting the Polish and next club settings. In the unique identifier we have given the whole ID (0025FFFF) to
be used for the national kits.
The Template is located in \FIFA MANAGER 11\user\kits. Both kit front and kit back have the texture size of
350x256. The aspect ratio however is displayed as 1:1 in the game. This means that before you work on these
parts of the texture, they should be scaled from 350x256 to the size of 350x350 (So the real aspect ratio can
be used), after that the finished front and back kit should be downscaled back to 350x256.
In the case of Legia Warsaw team it will look like on the following example.
